Get ready for a walk down memory lane.

You might have noticed a slight increase in the amount of throwback photos appearing on our news feeds as the world went into lockdown this year.
Isolation has certainly posed the perfect opportunity to step back in time and take stock of our lives - and all the things we've been able to do so far.
For Kylie Minogue, this couldn't seem to ring truer - and to prove our case, she's just posted the ultimate throwback post in honour of one of her longest, and dearest friends - and we, quite frankly, cannot stop staring.
June 1 marked fellow actor Jason Donovan's 52nd birthday, and his dearest friend Kylie made sure he knew she was thinking of him.
Sharing a series of throwback pictures to Instagram, Kylie wrote: "Happy birthday Jason!!!"
"We go back such a long way now. What amazing times! Working with the 'grown ups', learning lines, giggling on set with Guy and the team, travelling the world. Etc ETC!!!"

In the candid snaps, Kylie and Jason are seen in several shots from their TV days back in the 80s.
Yes, we're talking full blown curly hair Kylie and mullet Jason in all their throwback glory.

Fans were clearly thrilled to see such a solid retrospective from the singer.
"Gosh remember those days. Happy birthday!" Wrote one fan.
"The original IT couple," another commented.
Another demanded something we were all thinking: "BRING BACK THIS HAIR."
We wholeheartedly concur!

Kylie ended her throwback carousel with one last image of the pair captured recently during a rare reunion.
The picture is proof of how close these two have remained over the years, despite being former lovers.
Yes, the pair dated back in the day following their on-screen relationship in Neighbours.
Donovan has previously said Kylie was his first love and there was "a lot of chemistry" between them, but he knew the relationship would eventually come to an end as Kylie's career gained momentum.
But no matter what happened in the past, it seems these two really are rock solid in their friendship - and the throwbacks in between are enough to keep us entertained for the foreseeable future!
